This hike was offered as a tour by my hotel, there is a lovely view and a great little street cafe to have a smoothie or coconut water when you descend the mountain.

Make sure you go in the morning when it isn't too hot.

It was a good day to go hiking. We parked the car next to the road, and decided to hike to the view point instead of taking the pickups they had for tourists. We have been told that it is only 200 meters uphill hike to view point, we we did not know that it 200 meters from the point the pickups drop you off not from the starting point. The total hike to the view point was 1750 meters to the drop off point + 200 meters up hill through a narrow path to the view point.
The view was really worth the effort, when you see all these islands in the bottom. But be carful about the last 200 meters since it is slippery. So make sure you have a good sports shoe or hiking shoes.

Give it a 3.5 stars. To get to the view you need to hike about 200 meter or 656 ft. You drive or bike until you see a big black rock that says PA Hindum. Park your vehicle there. You will see a small patch directly across the rock. There you will have to walk up the hill. While the hike isn't bad, I would recommended you have sneakers as some part of the path is slippery and has rocks. Once you get up there is view is really nice. I see folks paragliding there. Other than that there isn't much to do.

An incredible view of southwestern islands and other viewpoints such as Promthep Cape and Windmill Viewpoint.

I wanted to describe how to get there because the directions I saw on line were poor. If you are in Patong go south on hi-way 4030. It's just the main road out of the city. Pass thru Karon and Kata and head toward Nui Beach. You will pass Karon Viewpoint hard to miss. Then, in about another 300 yards after Karon View will be the entrance to Nui Beach. At the entrance will be taxis and rides up there. You can take your scooter or whatever you have and do the drive yourself.

The road is pretty bad in many spots but not terrible. After roughly a kilometer there will be a bend in the road to the left and going straight is the decent to Nui beach. This is where I park my scooter. Take the bend left and it's about 500 meters a little uphill not too steep. You will come to a black rock that says Pa Hin Dum.

The opposite side of the road is another sign, in Thai, that has an arrow pointing up a trail. There is also a worn, faded very faded flag. Take this trail. It's about 200 meters and pretty built up with some railing and a rest spot at one point. Soon you will reach the top and see an incredible view.

Fair warning there is another trail behind a white bucket at the top. I went about 100 yards down this trail thinking it led to another view point. Well, I almost stepped on a snake and they have poisonous snakes. Luckily he darted away so that convinced me to go back to the main trail.

It is good for hiking because it is not too far , 1.6 km . A long walk but not so tough. I saw Small children walked with the Parents . You can park your own car and start walking up . It is Free ! If you take the ride , it is THB50 per ride but always ask and record the conversation. If you got cheated , keep the pictures and go to the Police Station quietly . The place is isolated, do not ask for trouble.

Black Rock View Point is located on the point that an admirable view of Promthep Cape and a spectacular view of Naihan Beach can be beautifully viewed. It is another perfect check-in spot for everyone. This photographic spot is popular for both amateur and professional photographers who love a little hiking adventure to get their desirable view.
While the sunrise view from there is beautiful, the sunset view is even more adorable. It is only 15 minutes away on foot from Naihan Beach

Black Rock Viewpoint is without doubt, the best high vantage view point on Phuket Island. What is rather ironic is that it looks out over the islands most famous sunset viewing location, Cape Prom Thep. As hundreds gather almost daily to watch the sun sinking on the western horizon they’re blissfully unaware of a much better viewing location, with very few sightseers, on a hill high above them. This is because Cape Prom Thep is a mainstream tourist destination which is set up to cater for hordes of visitors each day and the tour companies have no knowledge of alternative locations. To get to BLACK ROCK VIEW POINT, continue on the dirt track from NUI BEACH. From the checkpoint at the top of the track down to NUI BEACH you’ll see a fork to the left which goes uphill. Follow that and approx. 500 meters further on you’ll eventually come to a large rock with the Thai words “PA HIN DUM” painted on it, and an arrow pointing directly across the road to where the hiking trail starts. Park your bike/vehicle here and take the trail to the viewpoint. The trail is short but quite rough in places with jagged rocks so it’s advisable to wear decent footwear; more so for the hike back out. The view when you get there is quite spectacular. There is a safe viewing area at the very top and a few meters lower, another viewing area which gives a better angle to the western coastline.

NOTE: If you decide to go down to the lower viewing area take extreme caution as there’s a sloping rock surface which drops away precipitously. One slip and you’ll tumble more than 100 meters to the bottom. If you go to watch the sunset it’s advisable to take a flashlight with you for the hike down. The thick foliage on the trail will quickly reduce visibility. Without a flashlight you’re at risk of a fall from the many trip hazards along the way in the dark.
